(Chamaecrista fasciculata)

I grew this native plant for the first time last year, and was quite impressed with its visual appeal, even before the cheerful yellow flowers appeared! A pollinator favorite, it’s attractive to bees and butterflies, and the seed pods are excellent food for overwintering songbirds. Partridge Pea is an annual legume, and helps fix soil nitrogen. It readily self-seeds. Grows 2-3’ high, full sun, dry to medium soil.
